A LETTER TO MY GRANDMOM
Grandmom, please don’t go away.
Grandmom, I want to see you stay.
I want you to be there when I get married.
I want you to be there when I have my first child.
I know in life, people must go,
But Grandmom – not you, not yet.
It has been almost five years,
Since I saw you last.
Grandmom, I need someone to dry my tears.
My life is hell,
And that you are aware of.
Grandmom, I promise never to give up.
I called you yesterday,
But you were not there.
Grandmom, please don’t give up.
You’re brave and strong, as I know I should be.
Grandmom, please stay, but not just for me.
There’s my brother and sister and my niece, too.
And Mom and Dad,
Though our words have been few.
Grandmom, I love you more than you will ever know.
Grandmom, please don’t go…
